Weren't you the one who was just talking about how "pure" your relationship is?!

I think I can feel my brain melting. Well, at least they're trying to pass on instead of just sticking around as ghosts.

Yuna's voice sounds very nervous now. Clearly she's a bit uncomfortable by this discussion.

:drom: - This is a rather longstanding trope in the genre. Lots of "but how do two girls do it". Thankfully it's complicated at least a little bit by the fact that these two don't have bodies. But if I had a nickel for every time I read "But we're both girls!" in one of these stories I could probably safely retire to a nice southern California suburb.

:trex: - Bless the out-of-context yuri bot on Twitter (@ooc_yuri) for my next response.

Oh, gimme a break! I mean, I don't, but...! And this is a girls' school, you know! Even if I had a boyfriend, I wouldn't be able to have lunch with him here!

And I've never even thought about having a girlfriend!

And since we're ghosts, we haven't been able to do anything for those poor girls. But...

:trex: - Oh, so it's "sono-ano-hana"!

:utah: - ...

:drom: - ... Seriously?

For those who didn't get T-Rex's joke, "Sonohana" is short for the Japanese name of the Petals series I mentioned in the introduction (Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke O), and "Anohana" is similarly short for an anime series from a few years back where a reclusive high school kid is asked by the ghost of one of his friends to do favors for their old friends so that she can pass on. If you care to find out more about it, you can find it referred to in English as "The Flower We Saw That Day".

For those of you who did get T-Rex's joke, I am so terribly sorry.
